The HUB Houston is a non-residential educational organization serving the neurodiverse community in Houston and surrounding areas.  Located in Spring Branch, The HUB offers three distinctive programs for young adults from High School through Post Graduate ages.

The HUB offers a safe environment in which our Student Members are able to socialize, develop friendships, enhance relationships, and benefit from interactions through community service and group support.

 

High School

High School - A community-based educational program using a hands on approach with an emphasis on a project based high school curriculum. Our Student Members are invited to “do the work” of belonging through a distinctive personal and relational curriculum called the Journey of Belonging.

Faculty believe belonging to a community is at the heart of learning. The HUB aspires to be a welcoming, joyful center where interactive relationship practice is central and where each Student Member is accepted and cherished just as they are.  At The HUB, social relationships will flourish, academic growth will continue, and professional and employability skills are taught and practiced.

 

Faculty work with each Student Member to develop their own Journey of Belonging plan to commit to practicing growth in the areas of competence, independence, care, and membership.

The HUB High School schedule is August- May, Monday through Friday, 8:30AM – 3PM.
